DJ for a small reception?

Recommended Posts

Including my fiance and I there will be 33 people at the wedding. We are having a private reception. However, I'm wondering what we should do about music. For some reason, I feel like with only 33 people it doesn't make sense to pay for a DJ. But if I don't hire a dj, I'm not sure what would be the appropriate route for music. 

 

What do you think is the best route? How are all of you approaching music?

We have a total of 28 people including myself and FI and we have hired a DJ.  We love to dance and also big into music.  I do not want to have to worry about coordinating music and making announcements, etc and the DJ is who is in charge of the flow of the wedding reception. So we have one from dinner onward for 3 hours total.  Alternately, for our ceremony and cocktail hour, we have a steel drum player.

We had planned on using our IPod and downloaded a a wedding DJ app which mixed and faded the music together.  They had a dinner music section first dance section and then party music section in the app.  But our venue endded providing a DJ for us.

My FH and I are approximating 25 people to our DW. We won't have a final count for a while since our wedding isn't until 2014 but that being said as much as we're into music we're choosing not to pay an arm and a leg for the DJ as well. Ipod and play list is the route we're taking and our WC is providing the sound system free of charge. Since DW are not traditional we are not having a traditional reception i.e. no annoucements, father/daughter, mother/son dance, gater/bouquet toss ect. The only dance we're having is our First Dance. Everyone's vision is different so definitely to each is own! @ Mufin 1785---what DJ app did you plan on using? I love the idea of the mixing and fading...

I believe it was called Wedding DJ App it was $1.99 but well worth it as we had created a play-list before and they had a lot of dead silence in between songs.

+1, I'm doing exactly the same; I'm quite picky so cant trust the DJ and cant justify the costs. :-)
